Gotz 1983


This professional grade double bass has been in the posession of a professional orchestral player for the last 20+ years.  Bought as a matching pair, this instrument is in near mint condition. This is a wonderful and rare opportunity to own a fine orchestral instrument.

Made by the well known firm at Gotz, Germany, this instrument features highly figured maple with a carved back, violin corners and engraved machine heads.
